Sirloin Strip Slices Steak Sandwich
6 sirloin strip slices (2-4 oz. each), thawed
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 loaves Italian bread, cut in half and split
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium to large onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
Note: Be sure to thaw the sirloin strip slices on a dish in the refrigerator first, then remove them from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
1. Spread softened butter on Italian bread; set aside.
2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high. Add sirloin slices and generously season with salt and pepper. Sear 2-3 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
3. Heat pan again and sauté onion slices and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Stir frequently and cook until brown, 4-5 minutes.
4. Slice steak pieces into thin strips while toasting buttered Italian bread in the oven. Add sautéed onions and garlic to steak slices, then place evenly over toasted bread.
